Lawsuit Claims Seventh Death in Salvation Army Collapse

Danny Johnson died three weeks after suffering injuries.

NBC 10 reports: “More than a year after the fatal Market Street building collapse in Philadelphia, widow Bonnie Johnson is publicly blaming her husband’s death on the accident. Danny C. Johnson would be the 7th fatality.”

The station adds:

Johnson suffered from traumatic arm and leg injuries that day. He also inhaled “excessive dust and debris” which the suit claims exacerbated his pre-existing heart and respiratory issues.

“For more than three weeks after the collapse Mr. Johnson was in and out of the hospital suffering from cardiac complications, pulmonary injuries, and the crushing of his lower body,” according to attorney Jeff Goodman.

Johnson, who was working as a truck driver at the time, died on June 28, 2013.

In addition to the six other deaths, 13 people were injured in the collapse.
